Marengo man dies in Boone County accident

A Marengo man died Thursday morning in a two-vehicle accident outside Belvidere.

Tyler B. Young, 28, was driving a 2005 Ford van west on Route 20 at about 9:30 a.m. when he crossed the center line and struck a 2005 Volvo tractor head-on, according to a press release from the Boone County Sheriff's Office.

The accident occurred about a half-mile east of Belvidere in unincorporated Boone County.

Both vehicles came to rest in a ditch to the south of Route 20, the release said. Young was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the tractor, Kevin C. Sarver, of Marion, Mich., was taken to Swedish American Hospital in Belvidere with minor injuries.

An investigation is ongoing.
